From a buyer's perspective, I think Toyota has a solid stragety for maximizing customer acceptance for electric vehicles.  By making their electic vehicle features as similar to an existing RAV-4 as possible (such as including a powerful air conditioner), customers will have less of a technology paradigm shift when purchasing an electric vehicle (which will make them feel more comfortable with their purchase and help increase electric vehicle sales).
